DC and IDW have joined forces for Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II, a six-issue miniseries from writer James Tynion IV (Batman, Detective Comics) and artist Freddie Williams II (He-Man/Thundercats). TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman will be providing variant covers for the series. The first issue will be in stores December 6, with the second to follow on December 20. Subsequent issues will be released monthly.
In the miniseries, Donatello opens a door to another reality, hoping to bring Batman through. Instead, he gets sent to Gotham City, and Bane comes through to take over the underworld of New York. Donnie races to return with Batman and to stop Bane before it's too late.
The new team-up marks the second time the world’s greatest detective has joined forces with the pizza-loving ninjas. They previously came together in 2015 under Tynion and Williams’ direction (see “'Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Crossover”). The first issue of the series was among the top 50 comics of 2015 (see “Top 1000 Comics--2015, Part 1”).
